    Klopp will almost certainly bring Fabinho on in the second half.

    Good game both AM and Liverpool look vulnerable defensively but going forwards both sides look strong offensively.

    Anything could happen from here.😊

    Whatever the compensation figure is Mak I suspect Barca will wait for the Summer when there will be more options available for Barca and they can make a change without any compensation.

    Kane would have had a few already Brian had he have joined City.

    Lovely goal from Kane on Sunday confirming once again that form is temporary class is permanent.😊

    Good win for City though confirming why City are second favourites behind PSG for the CL.

    Not according to Marca Mak.

    However, should the Catalan side decide to sack the 58-year-old – or decide not to extent his stay beyond June 2022 – there could be costly repercussions.

    “According to Spanish outlet Marca, there is a clause in Koeman’s contract that means should the Barcelona hierarchy opt against renewing his deal at the club, he will receive at least €6million.

    When elaborating on the clause in the Dutchman’s contract, the report claims that it was included by former club president Josep Maria Bartomeu. The issue relates to the amount of money that Koeman had to pay the Dutch Football Association to terminate his deal with the national side in order to become the Barcelona manager last year.

    On the other hand, should the four-time Champions League winners decide the sack their manager before the end of the season, then he will reportedly receive around €14m in compensation.”

    But who really knows though.

    The Valencia result will have helped Koeman and given his contract expires in June 2022 I suspect Barca will leave replacing him until the Summer when it will cost them nothing to make a change.

    Related sponsorships are highly questionable Brian. It’s not difficult to market value a sponsorship there are for instance examples of the value of shirt sponsorships amongst Clubs to reflect what is a fair market value sponsorship same applies to Stadium namings etc.

    If there aren’t rules that govern the above it leaves the way open for country owned Clubs to filter illicit sponsorship monies into the Club’s they own.

    The 18 Clubs have agreed that the new rule won’t be retrospective.

    “Premier League clubs have united in a bid to limit Newcastle United’s ability to secure lucrative sponsorship deals following their Saudi takeover.

    At an emergency meeting on Monday a vote was passed that ensures the club’s new owners would not be able strike hyper-inflated arrangements involving pre-existing business relationships.

    Amid fears the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, which completed its takeover of Newcastle two weeks ago, would be able to land deals with companies in its homeland, the Premier League have invoked a temporary ban on such deals.

    Clubs believed it would be anti-competitive and sought for measures to be put in place that mean any arrangements would be blocked or secured for a fair market value.

    The vote was passed with an 18-2 majority.

    Other than Newcastle, the only other club to object the motion was Manchester City, who are owned by Abu Dhabi. The Premier League champions have been subject to investigations over their sponsorship – but were last year cleared by the Court of Arbitration for Sport after UEFA banned them from the Champions League for two seasons following β€œserious breaches” of Financial Fair Play.

    The initial legislation will be in place for only a month, but clubs will seek for a permanent arrangement to be put in place. Evening Standard 19/10

    True enough Lucky although FFP had all the Club’s signed up to it before it’s introduction.

    City couldn’t vote for this rule change as it would put at jeopardy a number of their sponsorships and seemingly Newcastle were planning to go down the same path.

    Be interesting to see where it all goes from here.

    Problem is Lucky changing the rules retrospectively might be tricky legally, it should have been done a long time ago. Agree with you though let’s hope it goes through and becomes permanent.

    Newcastle argument presumably will be be City have country related sponsorships operating already?

    To be fair money flowing in to Newcastle from Saudi based companies on spurious sponsorship deals would be p take.

    Seemingly that was on the Newcastle agenda otherwise why would Newcastle vote against it and why would they claim the ban is unlawful.

    To be fair Arsenal are trying to build a new young team and that takes time and patience from everyone.

    19 goals conceded in seven and a half matches illustrates the size of the problem facing Newcastle.

    Newcastle will need to bring 3 or 4 players in January particularly in defence and it isn’t an easy transfer window to try and trade in as well as replace Bruce who is a dead man walking currently.
